Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon, who was part of the driver lineup when Wayne Taylor Racing (WTR) competed in its very first race in 2007, returns to drive the all-new No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R.
He joins full-time co-drivers Ricky and Jordan Taylor and veteran Italian Max "The Ax" Angelelli for next month’s 55th Rolex 24 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 2017 season opener. Gordon co-drove to a solid podium finish in his only career sportscar event – the 2007 Rolex 24 At Daytona – alongside Angelelli, Jan Magnussen and team owner and three-time sportscar racing champion Wayne Taylor in the No. 10 WTR prototype. The No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R team has been a fixture on the Rolex 24 podium in recent years, finishing second in 2013, 2014 and 2016 and crossing the finish line third in 2015 before being penalized for a drive-time violation one week later.-True Speed Communication Dec 1 - 11:40 AM

Jeff Gordon ran only eight races in 2016, but he accumulated the ninth-best average finish of 13.88 in those events.

Gordon’s attraction for fantasy owners went much deeper than his average finish, however. In Pick ‘Em games that limited distributions, he was a great value because of his late addition to those contests. In salary cap games, he was uniformly affordable and typically had a great price-to-point ratio. He is not expected to race next year, but fantasy owners still want to be aware of his potential.

Jeff Gordon finished sixth in his final NASCAR Cup race at Martinsville Speedway—unless, of course, he un-retires again.

Gordon was the defending winner of this race last year and it launched him into title contention at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Following the Ford 400, he planned to retire until Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sidelined with a concussion. It took a while for Gordon to get comfortable in the new style car and he did not earn a top-10 until his most recent effort at Dover International Speedway. Now, he has back-to-back top-10s and can end his career on a high note once more.
Oct 30 - 6:28 PM

With an average finish of 5.0 (in five starts), Jeff Gordon has the best three-year average finish at Martinsville Speedway.

Gordon will struggle to beat his average this week, but he should easily have a top-10 with solid numbers in preliminary activities for the Goody's Fast Relief 500. Stranger things have happened than a dark horse winner on this track and Gordon won in his last Martinsville outing.
Oct 29 - 4:32 PM

Jeff Gordon finished 10th in the Citizen Soldier 400 at Dover International Speedway, which was his 476th career top-10 finish in the Cup series.

Gordon has made six previous starts this season in relief of Dale Earnhardt Jr. He finished 16th or better five times, but could never quite break this barrier. Gordon is second on the all-time top-10 list and his closest active competitor is Jimmie Johnson—151 behind. If Johnson swept the top-10, it would take more than four seasons to catch Gordon.
Oct 2 - 7:09 PM

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session of the weekend at Dover International Speedway for the Citizen Soldier 400. His top speed was 160.514 mph.

Gordon led a contingent of six non-Chase contending drivers at the top of the chart. Rain plagued this session and might have made the Chasers a little more conservative.
Oct 1 - 11:26 AM

Jeff Gordon had one of his best runs during his part time 2016 schedule at Richmond International Raceway with about 130 of 400 laps in the top 10, but he was shuffled back on a couple of late-race restarts and ultimately finished 16th in the Federated Auto Parts 400.

Restarts were Gordon’s Achilles Heel at the end of his fulltime career, so there was no reason to think this was going to get any better. Still, in straight pick ‘em games, five results of 11th to 16th in six starts have made him an acceptable value. In salary cap games, he is a provisional pick based on how he fits into the roster. His next start will come in three weeks at Dover International Speedway.
Sep 12 - 12:51 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will miss the remainder of the 2016 season with Alex Bowman and Jeff Gordon to substitute for the remaining 12 races, according to NBC Sports’ Dustin Long. Gordon will race four more times including this week’s Bojangles' Southern 500; Bowman will take over for the remainder of the season.

Gordon will concentrate on tracks where he has run best in the past. After Darlington, he will race again at Richmond International Raceway the following week, then Dover International Speedway and Martinsville Speedway in October. Bowman will drive the remainder of the schedule. The No. 88 will be an uneven value as the drivers seek chemistry with the team.
Sep 2 - 5:50 PM

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will miss the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup races, at least. Alex Bowman will substitute at Michigan International Speedway. Jeff Gordon will climb back behind the wheel at Darlington Raceway.

Providing updates in two-week increments makes it difficult to set one’s fantasy roster, but owners should plan on Earnhardt to be out of the car for some time. If he returns, it will likely take a few weeks for him to get comfortable behind the wheel once more. If Junior returns for Richmond and is still in the top 30 in points, he will have one, last-ditch effort to get into the Chase.
Aug 24 - 6:14 PM

Jeff Gordon challenged for a top-10 in the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race, but he was shuffled back to 11th following a late-race restart. He was unable to advance and finished in that position after starting the weekend 11th.

It was announced at Bristol that Gordon will not race at Michigan International Speedway regardless of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s health. Alex Bowman will step into the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet for the Pure Michigan 400, but Gordon might still be needed in his fill-in role. One would like for him to get at least one more opportunity to finish in the top 10 at Darlington Raceway or Richmond International Raceway.
Aug 21 - 10:14 PM

Jeff Gordon qualified 11th for the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway and made the final round of qualification for the first time since returning from retirement.

Bristol has always been one of Gordon’s best tracks and this is a great opportunity to obtain another top-10. He is moderately priced and should be on any roster where he fits a final niche.
Aug 19 - 7:11 PM

Jeff Gordon is still looking for his first top-10 since returning to the cockpit of a NASCAR Cup car. He finished 13th at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in his first start of the season and was 14th at Watkins Glen International.

Bristol Motor Speedway has traditionally been a good track for him, but he has sagged in recent years. Only half of his last 10 races on this course ended in top-10s. He lost four laps last August due to a lug nut problem.
Aug 18 - 5:16 PM

Jeff Gordon is still getting comfortable behind the wheel of the No. 88 and has not yet scored a top-10 finish. He only has three starts, however, and earned two top-15s.

Gordon would probably have a sweep of the top-15 if not for a freakish accident at Pocono Raceway when his seat belt came undone late in the race. He fell to 27th in the 400-miler, but finished on the lead lap. Last week, he should have contended for a top-10 if not for nose damage sustained early in the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen.
Aug 11 - 4:39 PM

Jeff Gordon will make his 800th career Cup start this week at Watkins Glen International and the numbers support a prediction of a strong run. In seven other milestone starts, he has finished in the top-three in all but one event.

Gordon finished 31st in the May 1999 Richmond International Raceway event, which was his 200th start, but he started on the pole that weekend. Notably, despite never finishing worse than third in the other six races, he has also never won.
Aug 5 - 1:31 PM

Jeff Gordon, who will be driving the No. 88 Axalta Chevrolet SS at Watkins Glen, will make his 800th career NASCAR Cup Series start this weekend.

He has made all 799 of his career Cup starts while driving for car owner Rick Hendrick. In addition to his four championships (1995, 1997, 1998 and 2001), Gordon has earned 93 Cup victories, which ranks him third on the all-time wins list. He’s a three-time Daytona 500 winner, a record five-time Brickyard 400 winner and has seven wins at Darlington Raceway. He has racked up 81 poles, which also ranks him third on the all-time pole award winner’s list, 325 top-five finishes, 475 top-10s and has led a total of 24,929 laps in his 24-year career.-Hendrick Motorsports
